FLIR Systems announced that it received $6.7 million of Foreign Military Sale (FMS) orders for delivery to Middle East / North African nations. The orders support Critical National Infrastructure Agency (CNIA) and Counter Terror (CT) missions and include FLIR's Star SAFIRE® III and UltraForce® infrared multi-sensor surveillance systems.
With over 1,100 systems on aircraft, vessels and fixed towers in the region, FLIR continues to be the system of choice by military allies in the Middle East and North Africa. FLIR is a preferred vendor for FMS programs due to its unique Commercially Developed Military Qualified (CDMQT) model. The CDMQ model provides a comprehensive array of electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) products that are customizable to every mission, but also allow for rapid deployment on hundreds of platforms for airborne, maritime, and land applications.
"These orders, contributing to the $60 million in FMS orders received so far in 2009, highlight FLIR's international reputation for product and service excellence," said Earl Lewis, President and CEO of FLIR Systems. "We appreciate the U.S. Army's support of FLIR through FMS contracts and we are pleased to contribute to the national safety and security of our allies."
